Synonymous with honey-coloured stone, thatched cottages and chocolate box villages, the Cotswolds is without doubt one of the most quintessentially English places to visit, drawing visitors from across the globe. Time appears to have stood still for centuries, and untampered landscapes are intrinsic to its distinctive charm.
With each season, new scenes of natural beauty are painted across the countryside. Although the vibrancy of spring colours touches the hearts of visitors, there is nothing more aesthetically pleasing that enjoying a winter break at one of these romantic Cotswolds hotels, when soft flakes of snow fall helplessly onto cottage roofs and dust the hilltops.
But there’s so much more to the Cotswolds than sleepy villages and scenic countryside, throughout the cobbled streets can be found traces of its historic past and cultural events by the bucket load. And why wouldn’t you expect to find quirky eateries selling delicacies and dishes that showcase ingredients sourced from the area’s giant natural larder. Stop by one on the humble pavement cafes or rustic pubs, where people watching and good food goes hand in hand. Then there’s the fabulous artisan galleries that you can dip in and out of as you amble around the pretty towns.
